Welcome to the AVSIM forums!  Here's a thought.  I move my mouse and pad over to the left of my keyboard and use the mouse with my left hand. Works like a charm!😉

This is based on individual preference.  Most joysticks are configured for right hand use while some allow for left hand use.  Joysticks are also associated with fighter type airplanes where the single pilot uses right hand for a controller and the left for throttle.  General aviation and most airliner airplanes have a yoke where the pilot sitting on the left side generally uses the left hand for the left side of the yoke and the right hand for throttle, reversed with the pilot sitting on the right side.  Airbus airliners have joystick type controllers, where the left side pilot uses left hand on the joystick and right hand on throttle, reversed for the right hand pilot.
